    I don't have any money on me now. If anyone can treat me, let me know.

    Know and now are spelled differently.

    Hi!
    It's not just a question of spelling and confusing between now and know, but I think it's also a problem in meaning, I don't think that it's true to say: If anyone can treat me, let me know. I found it a little meaningless... It's not related to the first sentence; I don't have any money on me now, which is clear for me.

    "treat me" means "pay for me"

    I have no money, can someone pay for me? Makes perfect sense.

    Yeah, I prefer " pay me" better than "treat me" as you said it makes perfect sense for me too.

    Thanks

    Thanks
    They mean the same thing. "Pay for me" could be too blunt. You can say half-jokingly "can someone treat me" if that's the case. It depends on context.
